The Master of Arts in International Crime and Justice reflects the College’s commitment to the internationalization of criminal justice education and builds on the strengths of our undergraduate degree in international criminal justice by opening the possibility of graduate education in this field.  Indeed, this is the first program of this nature in the United States.  The MA in International Crime and Justice combines advanced substantive knowledge of international crime challenges and domestic and international responses, with analytic and research techniques in an interdisciplinary framework.  It aims to produce graduates with a truly global outlook on criminal justice, a moral commitment to international justice, and professional competence in the increasingly multicultural workforce.  

The program is designed for:

  • Graduates of baccalaureate programs in criminal justice (including international criminal justice) and other related disciplines in the social, behavioral and political sciences;
  • Mid-career professionals in criminal justice-related fields in the United States:
  • Criminal justice personnel from countries besides the United States, and staff from international agencies, intergovernmental organizations and civil society organizations.

 

Students will find this degree applicable to professional career interests as well as for preparation for doctoral study in a variety of disciplines.
